Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is turning into the Left’s boogeyman. Even the famous NAACP is going after him.
But Ron DeSantis said three stunning words about the NAACP that will leave you floored.
Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, is answering calls for a travel advisory for his state.
An official from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in Florida pushed for a travel advisory because of the governor’s policies, the reporter who was covering the event on Thursday asked the governor.
DeSantis replied, “What a joke.”
He proceeded on, “We’ll see how effective that is. Just remember, during COVID, these people would be on CNN all this stuff slamming Florida, saying we were so bad, don’t go to Florida.”
“And then they would end up being spotted on the beach somewhere vacationing in Florida. So this is just ridiculous,” he added.

The Florida State Conference of the NAACP overwhelmingly decided on Saturday to request approval from the national office to issue a travel warning due to “draconian” laws.
“We would issue this to anyone who is thinking of coming to Florida, thinking of sending their children to school — anyone planning to breathe in Florida,” NAACP Florida State Conference Marsha Ellison said to WTSP.
She wants everyone to be “woke,” she added.
The vote occurs at the same time as DeSantis vetoed a Florida AP African American studies course because it covered “queer theory” and movements that called for “abolishing prisons.”
It was rightly dubbed a “political agenda” by the governor.
“That’s the wrong side of the line for Florida standards. We believe in teaching kids facts and how to think, but we don’t believe they should have an agenda imposed on them when you try to use Black history to shoehorn in queer theory, you are clearly trying to use that for political purposes,” Ron DeSantis argued.
Moreover, DeSantis is pushing to broaden the Parental Rights in Education Act, often known as “Don’t Say Gay” by its detractors.
All grades would not be taught about gender identity in the classroom as a result of the extension.
Students would have the option to opt out of reproductive health education, except in cases where it is mandated by current state standards.
According to current legislation, students in kindergarten through third grade cannot learn about gender identity in the classroom.
